Caching is a critical component of Drupal. But how does it work? This session will clearly explain the nuts and bolts of the caching system internals, present successful caching strategies, and show how caching solutions can change as Drupal scales up using memcache as an example. One fortunate attendee will receive a free auto-throttle probability limiter.

In this session Iâll present a review of Drupal built tools for project management. You'll get an introduction to Open Atrium and the tools we developed for Knowledge and Project management in Open Atrium. After this introduction Iâm...

This session will introduce you to the wonderful and powerful tool of working from a *nix command line interface (CLI) instead of using a GUI (pointy-clicky). This is targeted at folks who've never opened a terminal before, but will cover a number of tips and tricks along the way. We'll even show you how Windows users can get the same CLI that Linux and Mac users use, so you can use it too! Main points we'll cover: - Huh? What is this thing? How do I get one? - Moving around (both locally and...

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe. -Abraham Lincoln Despite such a wise dictum and lots of personal experience to teach us otherwise, we find continued pressure to dive into projects with little to no planning in efforts to âgo fasterâ. However the goal we set ourselves was to reduce Drupal development time by 80% and this session is to share the invaluable lessons we have learned in the quest to go much, much faster. We've spent two...

The session will cover the differences between Group and Organic groups, and how Group is taking advantage of the field API. We will build a basic groups site without any coding. Later, for the benefit of module maintainers, we will build an example module that integrates with Group in order to learn how to use its API, this way attendees will have a better understanding on how to upgrade the OG modules from...

In this presentation I'll look at three core technologies that drive the IA and user experience of Open Atrium: Context, PURL and Spaces. I'll explain the history and development of the ideas behind each, explain their respective roles, and show how they can be used together to create something greater than the sum of their parts. * Context is a module for triggering reactive behaviors within a page load. Controlling block visibility, menu trails, page classes, and page template layouts are...

For years, the Token module has provided Drupal developers with a consistent, centralized API for replacing placeholders with dynamic content in user-facing text. Drupal 7 includes a new, advanced version of Token as part of core! This session will cover what's new, what's changed, and how your modules can make the transition.

CTools, aka the Chaos tool suite is one of the most popular (#31 as reported by http://drupal.org/project/usage in early January 2010) and arguably least understood modules in the contributions repository. While most users will enable it only because of a dependency (i.e. panels), there are some wonderful gems in this tool kit that simplify module development. In this session I will cover the JavaScript and AJAX tools introduced by CTools. Dependent form widgets Form handling within an AJAX...

The goal of this session is to give developers a general introduction to several important APIs....

Over the past decade, Drupal has grown from a hobbyist's side project to a world-class CMS framework. For those just joining the party, though, finding information about its design, architecture, and development philosophy can be difficult. Most information exists in API-specific silos, while birds-eye-view introductions focus on site builders rather than developers and architects. This session will provide a high-level overview of Drupal's major architectural components, common development...

At Drupalcon Copenhagen, our fearless leader posed the question, "What would happen if Drupal grew 10x larger?" This session will attempt to explore the Drupal community angle of that question. Our community has already seen exponential growth–in 5 years Drupal.org has gone from ~25,000 to ~1,000,000 members–and it can be baffling (and a little terrifying) to think of the community growing bigger still. And yet, the community of contributors is what drives Drupal, and so in order...

Yeah, sure... your site is slow. But why? How do you find out? And what are you going to do about it when you do find out? In this session the development team at ConsumerSearch.com (one of the largest Drupal sites out there) discusses performance and scalability issues we've faced and how we've addressed them. We'll be sharing how we tested, tuned, tweaked, and hacked Drupal and our environment to squeeze as much performance out of it as we could. Performance is a multifaceted problem, and...

What do cloud services offer Drupal developers today? See Drupal cloud technology from Acquia, Pantheon, and Microsoft up close and behind the scenes. We'll put these tools in the hot-seat to see if they are ready for prime time and how they compare to traditional hosting and to each-other. We will also do a deep dive into the stacks to see how they were built to scale.

One of the largest early impacts on my Drupal experience was attending a Drupal camp. Drupal camps have grown and become wildly popular and for good reason- they are awesome.

Content administrators are the forgotten users of the internet. The user experience field focuses on delivering usable, compelling experiences for end users — but doesn't always consider what will be required from the people who maintain the site each day. Drupal developers sometimes forget that there are lots of people who use Drupal every day who don't know (and don't want to know) how Drupal works. In this session, we'll focus on understanding the needs of content administrators, and...

Web mapping is a substantial way for users to explore data on a site. More and more users are comfortable using a web mapping interface thanks to mostly the work of Google Maps. This means that you can have more confidence in your audience's ability to use a map to find relevant data. "Google Maps are like stock photography". We are past the point of just embedding a Google Map into a site and putting a few red markers on it. We can do so much more that will ensure that your...

Code that talks only to itself is not useful to anyone. Code that enables other code magnifies its power 10-fold. But how do we enable other code, and those who write it? What makes a module extensible? What is that vague extra something that turns merely extensible code into an API, a library, and a cornerstone of other systems? How do we harness that power for ourselves? Let us examine the Aphorisms of Good API design, and the 8-Fold Path of API Nirvana. This session goes beyond how to write...

If you've worked on a multi-developer project, you've probably seen it. Everyone works on their own copy of the repository, finishes a batch of changes, integrates changes to the repository...and at some point, someone discovers that there is a bug. Perhaps they or someone else were coding against uncommitted changes on their own checkout, or two developers working on seemingly unrelated components accidentally introduced a conflict. Whatever the reason, such a bug may go undiscovered for some...

Our clients often come to Drupal with expectations about the features of a content management system (CMS). In many cases, Drupal handles the features they expect. However, not all editorial tools are a part of Drupal Core, and Drupal has addressed these tools with various contributed modules. As a result, Drupal’s editorial space generally lacks a consistent workflow and interface. At DrupalCON San Francisco, Palantir.net outlined the opportunities we saw for improving content management...
